90% of schools voted us great value for money 2017!

Price has been listed as the number 1 priority when schools are selecting a school trip provider in a recent School Travel Forum survey, involving 60 schools.

We are delighted to announce that 90% of Acorn's schools and groups voted us `Great value for money` in 2017.

Why Acorn is a #BrilliantResidential

As part of the big `Learning Away` campaign for #brilliant residentials, sixty schools have been asked what makes a brilliant residential? Over 35 years, Acorn has been working closely with teachers to ensure we are always delivering #brilliantresidentials and we get some amazing feedback every year. Here’s how we deliver on what these sixty schools tell us makes a #brilliantresidential:

Why your school should travel to Normandy with Acorn next summer...

From the Norman invasion of England in 1066 to the D-Day landings of 1944, Normandy has played an important role in European history. With its spectacular monastery, Mont St-Michel; the Bayeux Tapestry, D-Day beaches, war memorials, magnificent rugged coastline and cultural charm, it's clear to see why many UK schools travel to Normandy every year.

Ofsted's view of Learning Outside the Classroom

Acorn values it's membership of the LOtC, which actively promotes, encourages and supports the use of places other than the classroom for teaching and learning. School trips are a great way to achieve this and there are lots of other ways too. The LOtC website is a useful platform to gain ideas to help you with this and they have also produced some interesting information about Ofsted's views about LOtC, which you may find interesting:
